SIMRAD Halo®6 Pulse Compression Radar and NSO Evo2 Install, 46m Cat GRP Shadow Vessel
MANDURAH MARINE ELECTRICAL proudly commissions a 46m Shadow Vessel for ECHO YACHTS.
THE SUPER YACHT November 2014
Under construction at Echo Yacht’s Henderson facility is an 84m Trimaran superyacht, due in 2017, and a 46m catamaran support vessel.
The 46m shadow vessel is a catamaran design that will be used as a support vessel for the 84m superyacht on its completion. Built in fibreglass with cutting edge vacuum infusion processes and high tech laminates, the vessel has been designed by LOMOcean in New Zealand to house a fleet of 11 watercraft including a 12m catamaran. An impressive strength to weight ratio will see the yacht able to efficiently cruise in a wide range of environments.
A large amount of design and engineering work was invested into the project prior to build work commencing to ensure a construction process that is extremely efficient without any compromise on quality. Focusing on R&D and harnessing innovation is a core goal of the yard, and the 46m project is a clear demonstration of the beneficial effects of this programme.

The arrangement also includes the construction of a 46 metre fibreglass catamaran that will be deployed as a support vessel for the larger build. The catamaran will carry 12 tenders designed with a range of sporting and exploratory capabilities. A 12m tender will be equipped with full navigation systems and high tech 3D sonars for the exploration of sea beds and sunken wrecks.
Both the super yacht and the support vessel will feature unique hull forms and the construction processes will incorporate numerous state-of-the-art build techniques and bold engineering ideas. Commenting on the project, Echo Yachts director Mark Stothard said “Together with my partners Jurien Van Rongen and Nick Gardiner, we are thrilled to have been selected to head‐up this project and, we are very excited about the world-class credentials of those who will be working with us.” Resource http://echoyachts.com.au/news/page/5/
